Hello Reapervites!

So here are three more Wood Elf figures, been working on a group of these and getting them finished little by little.

 

With them all, want them to be kind of the same but a little bit of variety, so tried to vary clothing colors and hair colors, but keeping it all in natural and autumn colors, browns, greens and oranges/yellows.  So anyhoos, here are three more:

Tried to some freehand that would tie in on the shield and banner.  My freehand is sometimes not the greatest, but oh well, give me something to want to learn better!

 

So enjoy!

I particularly like the color on the archer’s cloak.

 

You’ve gotten these from Ral Partha Legacy, I see…I hadn’t realized that they have added some of the goblins as well.

 

I didn’t own any of these elves BITD for some reason, although I was around then.  I acquired seven or eight blister packs of them in a store in the Los Angeles area on a business trip around 1990, but there were no archers, so I was glad when Iron Wind was finally convinced to dig into their mold archives and put them into production again.

Here a few vintage ones are standing off an attack by equally vintage goblins aided by a Prince August orc and a Ral Partha AD&D Cyclops-kin in 2013…

I meant more that your freehand was straighforward and in the theme of fantasy from then 😉 

Thanks Iridil, not to worry, and I very much appreciate it!

Yup, trying to get them all painted up for their catalogue! I've got the rest of the elves as well, trying to get through them all before the end of the year!

 

Trying to remember, I think I started out using Camouflage green for the archer's cloak and then some browns, deeper greens for shading and I think I went up to lemon yellow with the highlights, or maybe white, I don't even remember any more.

 

Great photo of those old school minis!  I hope to get some of their goblins as well some day.

      Hello all you Reaperloogans!
       
      So this one I finished a few nights ago is Valania the Sorceress.  I'm not sure who sculpted her, but I really did enjoy painting her.  She's one of the newer Partha figures, I think after they became Iron Wind, and she's got a tab base, not an integrated base.  She's also a bit larger, not the 25 mm of old. She's actually around the size of a Reaper figure.
       
      So for her skin I tried something a little different, I started out with Blushing Rose, because I wanted to have her be a little ruddy and pinkish. 
      Hopefully she turned out okay!

      Good evening Reaperhoochagans!
       
      So I've already done a set of these, but was asked to do another one with another different color scheme, so here is round two of the Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain fairies:
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      This time I was asked to do some different and darker skin tones, so did some tones using Dusky Skin, Terran Khaki, Redstone, Dark Skin Highlights
       
      So anyhoos, hope you all enjoy!
       
      EDIT:  adding a link to the original set of fairies:

      Good evening Reapertons!
       
      So I've been busy working on a little project, plus I'm painting some Christmas elves for my mom, but amidst everything else I got inspired to repaint a figure that for some reason I've always liked quite a lot. She's a very simple figure, and I painted her first probably way back in 1980 something, probably between 1982-1986.  She was sculpted by Dennis Mize in a set of four other thieves in the Children of the Night range. I've actually painted three of the four, still haven't gotten around to painting the last one with a grappling hook.  Anyway, showing off new to old:
       

       
      and here is the original miniature, way back from the funky monkey eighties:
       

       
      and here she is when I painted her maybe in the early 2000's, I'm guessing between 2004-2006:
       

       
      and here they are all together:
       

       
      So the oddest thing about these is that I've really never succeeded in varying from the basic color scheme.  There's always a bit of a change, but I always envisioned her as a dusky skinned, desert-themed thief.   One of these days I have a feeling that I'll paint her again, and I'll try to do a hugely opposite color scheme, blonde hair and bright clothing.  Who knows when though, it seems it takes me over a decade to get to a new version of a figure!

      Hello to all you Reaperthalians!
       
      Here's another figure I just got done with, Shara Darksteel, a Ral Partha/Iron Wind Metals figure.    I really like her skull mask, and tried to give her some darker slightly Gothy colors, without making her just black, and her robe ended up looking more or less like a monk's robe.
       

       
      my settings that I use seem to tamp down the color of these figures, her hair is much more vibrant and the features on her bolts are a lot more red.
       
      I used bright skin as her base color, which was a color I hadn't used in quite a while so that was nice to do something different.  
       
      I wish I knew who the sculptor was for this miniature, but not quite sure. Might have to hunt her down in the Lost Mini Wiki.
       
      So anyhoos, more to come as long as breath flows from my body and my hands don't shake!
       
      Hope everybody had a nice Turkey Day!

      Hello all you Reapertoniks!
       
      Here's a few more Partha classics, three more elves sculpted by Tom Meier in around 1976-1977, a musician that belongs I think to a command group, the commander with that command group, and a female elf that I think came separately?
       

       
      Used the same color schemes I had for my earlier elves, hope you enjoy!
